Hi,

What happens after selecting your wireless network name?

What's the brand and model of your att wireless router?

Thank you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I don't think it asked for wireless name..I tried the easy set up, then tried the easy network set up..um, it wasn,t easy :o(

Where will I find above info or router..it's in the basement...it is a newer model of what we previously had and hooks up the fastest, they say? We got no instruction book with it the technical [erson from ATT hooked it up and there is a lage box on the inner wall where phone lines come in...maybe that is why they say tier 2 support?

Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
The model is listed on the back/bottom of the router/device.

When you try the easy network setup, what did it ask for?

Can you try another method and let me know? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is router same as modum? Let me go get that information off the modum..will be right back!
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
Sometimes the modem and router are combined into one; just check all the Internet devices.

Can you try other options on the bluray? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think there is a manual set up for it..but, I don't know much about these machines they intimdate me...there is the other box they put in the basement where wire comes in, then it goes over to modum...I can go down & check other box

Modum had SSID 2 wire623, wi fi key # XXXXX a Mac#..but we don't have Mac computers? We have HP...will check other box....be right back, putting info on pad of paper to copy & send to you this is so dang frustrating!!!
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
That's good enough. Don't worry about the Mac #. When you try the manual setup, what happens when you select the 2wire623 name and enter your wifi key number? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Other big box was power supply and battery backup...that is/isn't needed?
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
No, it's not needed. Don't worry about the Mac #. When you try the manual setup, what happens when you select the 2wire623 name and enter your wifi key number? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It first asks to choose how to set up wireless network? If access point supports WPS, select "Wi FI Protected Setup
Then below is 2 wire, and it also has manual registration...not sure if WPS?
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
Can you select 2wire...? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did and now it's asking for WPA key?
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
Great. Enter the wifi key # XXXXX the bottom/back of the router (it is case-sensitive). Thank you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did and now it's asking for WPA key? There are astriks after the WPA, how do I stART OVER WITH THE NUMBER? Also, why is it asking me to pay and its not resolved?
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
Can you delete and enter the key on the back/bottom of the router and/or just continue, etc.? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK it says there is an update, but I have no idea where to find it....it says internet settings now complete! With wireless and internet access both say OK!

Will this now allow me to have "large screen" computer for 80 year old husband to see?

That is what am trying to accomplish.... if it is done THaNK YOU, XXXXX XXXXX feel so inadequate with this machine....
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
Great. You're welcome. Just follow anything it lets you do on the screen, and/or just use it.

Yes, you can play internet movies, etc. from the bluray on the large screen.
